So I'm in the middle of replacing my spindles. 2.5" drop spindles and 2" drop springs. Flip kit in rear. Passenger side went on relatively easy. Drivers side looks like the lower ball joint is bad. I went ahead and removed the entire LCA with spindle attached since it won't release. I've tried everything to get the castle nut off without success. You can feel some play in the ball joint itself too. Bushings are marginal on both sides. My choices at this point are: 1- replace ball joint, send it. 2- replace ball joint and bushings, send it 3- replace bj and both lca bushings 4- replace with tubular lca and update sway bar. The is honestly where I'm leaning. I hate the cost but, seems like there is a lot of benefit with additional castor built in and updated parts. Thoughts?
